“Fantastic Getaway”
Reviewed 23 March 2009

We all had a great time. Villa Playa Maria was luxurious, had great audio/video systems, and provided plenty of room for eight adults and a baby. Acting as manager, caretaker, and entertainment concierge, Stuart White turned out to be a great host, insuring that our vacation was a success. Among the most enjoyable activities were; surfing lessons, watching others do it correctly, taking it easy at the private pool, prime beach volleyball viewing, snorkeling right down the beach (swam with hawksbill turtle), golf, nighttime campfires on the beach, hiking and swimming in waterfall pools, eating out and dancing at a local bar. Diving was not the best but open sea conditions prevented us from experiencing the Desecheo Island area that Stu recommended. All and all this place was the best located accommodation in the Rincon area. Watch out for the 151 Rum punch at Calypso Bar & Grill!

What an amazing house & location you have here. Our girls (ages 4 & 2) had a blast playing in the pool & on the beach, while Matt & I made ourselves comfortable next to the blender. FANTASTIC !!!!

We felt so at home here that we really didn't feel the need to venture too far. Thank you for an Amazing Vacation that we'll surely remember for along time to come. We plan to visit again soon !!!!

Our family stayed at the Villa for three days. It is a beautiful home, in a lovely location, operated by a poor business man. The house was very nice as advertised. We all enjoyed our stay. However, the owner does not conduct himself in a professional manner concerning the payments which detracts from our otherwise nice experience. On several occasions before our arrival, we were told that the $500 security deposit would not be collected. To my surprise I was charged the $500. When we got to the house there were notices in every room informing us that the electricity rates had gone up and we would be charged an additional fee to compensate. There was no discussion of this additional fee prior to our arrival. When I informed the owner about being charged for the security deposit, He told me that he would refund the amount. It is now October - two months after our stay - and I have not received a refund. It is unfortunate that the owner conducts business in this manner and really detracts from any desire to do business with him in the future. Buyer Beware!

stu, Owner/Manager at Villa Playa Maria, responded to this review, 26 November 2008
Rules, Regulations, Procedures & Notices are posted at "the Villa" before & upon arrival. The comment from this guest is out of line with the our policy and published rates that state, " rates/fees are subject to change", especially with ecomonic condtions.

The Island experienced a 200% rise in electricity charges at the end of June of 2008, this rise unfortunately had to be passed on to all guests but without enough time to e-mail or call everyone booked in July & August, notices were posted in all rooms of "the Villa" stating that there would be a daily electricity surcharge & if any of the guests had any questions they were to speak with the management. All guests before and after this guest's arrival had been understanding & sympathetic to the policy, given the global economic situation. Are new published rates have been adjusted to reflect the new surcharge. The security deposit was returned to him per the time period stated in the contract minus the electricity surcharge for their 3 days that they spent at " The Villa" We at the Villa Playa Maria try to cater to all of our guests needs above & beyond the call of duty and try to give give them a unforgetable expierence to take home with them . We truly value their opinons & we applogize to this guest for this unfortunate mis- understanding.
